OCUL Wins the 2012 OLITA Award for Technical Innovation

The Ontario Council of University Libraries' (OCUL) geospatial data platform Scholars GeoPortal was awarded this year's Ontario Library and Information Technology Association (OLITA) Award for Technical Innovation. This award, sponsored by OCLC Canada, supports technical innovation in libraries. The Scholars GeoPortal officially launched on 1 March 2012, and offers Ontario's university students and researchers the ability to enrich their research as they search, preview, manipulate and download geospatial datasets on topics including land use, transportation networks, census boundaries, points of interest (such as schools, airports, and golf courses), and orthophotography
